Specs: Windows XP
My ipconfig output is something like:
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . :
fe80::5efe:192.168.235.102%2

This just started happening 2 weeks ago and
since then my
other laptop keeps disconnecting from the
internet frequently and my iPhone cannot
connect to the
WiFi.
Thanks for any help.

If you open a command prompt window and type the following command:

ipconfig /all

I suspect you'll see that that is actually showing your IP in the IPv6 format. You'll probably also see the IPv4 (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) format as well.

You need to describe your network and if you have a router, it's make/model.

ex: internet >> router >> clients

This just started happening 2 weeks ago

Did you change something 2 weeks ago?

Thanks for your response, Curt.

ipconfig /all displays the following:

(do you want to see the entire output of ipconfig /all?)

My network is as follows:

Telephone Jack >> Verizon DSL Modem (Model Wirespeed)
>> VPN Router (Model Linksys RV042) >> Wireless Router
(Model Linksys WRT54G v3.1) >> 2 wireless clients (Lenovo
ThinkPad laptops)

I did not change any configuration in the last 6 months.

I recently had a couple of blue screens on my laptop when I
was using my AT&T Wireless USB card for internet. Not sure
if it corrupted something.

Thanks!
